Trey Songz puts the camera on his native hometown of Petersburg, Virginia in his latest visual for ‘Top of the World.’ The uplifting song appears on his fresh mixtape, ‘Anticipation II,’ and his upcoming EP, ‘Inevitable,’ which hits stores Nov. 28.
Directed by Songz and John Ledbetter, the six-minute video begins with the singer holding hands in prayer, giving thanks to the city that “raised him” before treating local residents to a special dinner on the football field. We also see Songz giving back to his community, providing haircuts, watching cars and playing basketball.
Near the end of the video, we see Trigga walking through his old neighborhood with the community behind him. “If I could I would bring the whole ‘hood to the top of the world, with me / It’s my world, for free / Trying to get what you came to see,” he sings.
The clip ends with this encouraging message from Trey Songz: “They say never forget where you came from. I won’t because it made me the man I am today.”
